K5 - 13k, not 18k. We have a house, covered there P7 - sounds familiar 😂 EY5 - 15 years. 60/40 stocks and RE. Just basic funds and a couple rental properties

If you're engaged or married you might need to be a bit more honest, but if you're just dating, just say "I make 6 figures" and leave it at that. It's not a lie, it shows that you can provide a comfortable lifestyle, and giving a more modest number will keep away the crazies and won't make the more grounded girls think you're full of shit

There is a comment before this in which I say that it’s absolutely not ok for harassment to occur to either gender, but harassment and fear of being attacked is a constant item women need to think about on a regular basis, and men so not. This was his response.

I decided last week to actively look to leave not only my job but my industry, and felt really good and positive about it. Today I've woken up feeling daunted and unsure about it. Ive sat with it for a while and I think it's because - and some of you can rightfully get your tiny violins out here - I haven't actively applied for jobs since I was a grad. Every job I have had has come from connections or referrals, but now I'm actively putting myself out there, I feel vulnerable.
